The activity for SJ7SOP in the SM6 area is slowly coming to it’s end as me and the family are leaving the summer QTH tomorrow. So far I’ve managed to get about 50 worked stations during my stay. I’t could have been more but the family activities comes first. However I’m satisfied with my activity and especially as I’m working QRP.
Station setup with FT-817ND, Signalink USB and Acer Aspire One notebook
I’ve mostly activated 40m and 20m PSK31/63 as I didn’t realy find out a good way to work JT65/9 with the /6 suffix in WSJTX. When calling CQ in WSJTX with the /6, the locator is missing in my transmission. This problem will not be an issue back home why i’ll wait activating the JT modes until I get home again.
The portable antenna, linked dipole for 20m and 40m setup in the garden.
The antenna setup is the same as my portable kit, the linked 20 and 40m dipole. In the garden, next to the house I’ve set it up in a inverted V configuration with good results. I could have set it up in the surrounding trees but I figured that it would be a perfect field testing for the antenna kit so I put it up as it was intended for.
The house in Tösse, JO68HX.
I’m glad to see that some of the stations I worked are qualified for the SOP award. Hopefully I will manage to get a diploma this year myself, not only helping others to earn theirs 😉
